To all Wine Exchangers,
Do you remember the 2009 and 2010 Croix de Beausejour, Beausejour Duffau’s second label? Or the 2014 and 2015 Le Mumure de Larcis Ducasse?  All were no-brainer '2nd' wines that we sold out of lickety-split as they had incredible pedigree for the price.

Well, the same all-star team from both of those Chateaux (as well as their amazing second wines), Nicolas Thienpoint and Stephane Derenecourt, are also involved at Pavie Macquin. The second wine for Pavie Macquin is called Le Chenes de Macquin and has a limited production of only about 600 cases.

The bar in this neck of the woods is high, higher than almost any wine producing area of the globe. Imagine having estates like Pavie, Troplong Mondot and Ausone (which Pavie Macquin faces) as your neighbors? In this neighborhood, even when you produce a “second wine, it still has to be great! Le Chenes is just that… serious wine BUT without the serious price!

A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the Les Chenes de Macquin Saint Emilion 2015 sees all the attention to detail that the “Grand Vin” sees. With an emphasis on fruit and the goal to make this one drinkable at an early age, Nicolas Thienpont knows the outstanding potential of this terroir. With the advice of Derenoncourt Consultants, they combine traditional and innovative techniques to bring out the unique character that this estate possesses.

I have already consumed at least three bottles of this wine because it’s just so darn engaging. Trust me, this is a wine you can drink tonight! When I open it for the staff (for educational purposes, of course ), the genuine excitement was unanimous.  In addition to being an outstanding value on its own merit, it also received 96 points from James Suckling.

What?!

Yeah, James writes, “Aromas of dried mushrooms, blackberries, licorice and hints of limestone follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. This is a fantastic second wine. Drink or hold...96 points.”

This is a real beauty of a wine but, as we said, it’s very limited.  We bought all we could and it’s a steal at $34.98. Do not miss this one. For all intents and purposes it’s a Grand Cru Bordeaux with great pedigree from an excellent vintage at an outstanding price.

We’re one of the only two retailers privileged to sell it in the US, and at the best price globally. But it’s really about the wine and just how delicious it is.  That’s the reason why we’re so excited to offer this little gem to you. This is one of the times when going the extra mile to find exceptional juice really paid off.

A real stealth find!
